Wow! 40 years! That's four decades... two full generations... almost 15,000 days-in-the-life. And a lot of apples, if you've been with us all those days, trying to keep the doctors (and food profiteers) away.

The benefits of reusable bags are probably not a mystery to any of GreenStar's members. Each time we bring in our own bags to do our shopping we are doing our part to reduce the paper and petroleum industries' production of disposable bags. This in turn reduces the presence of these items in our landfills and reduces the pollution associated with their manufacture. Because of this, GreenStar has always encouraged the use of reusable bags in our stores through a rebate policy.

2011 promises to be a year of transformations for GreenStar. It is also a year to celebrate our growth and accomplishments 40 years after the 1971 founding of the Ithaca Real Foods Co-op, a group buying co-op. The business eventually became GreenStar Cooperative Market, and was incorporated on Winter Solstice, Dec. 22, 1982. Now, 28 years later, we are a two-store organization, operating a warehouse, with combined sales of $15 million, serving a membership of over 7,500! Happy Birthday, GreenStar, and we look forward to another 28 years of service to our member-owners, our community and as an example of the cooperative, democratic business model.
